I'm trying to draw my druid, to form part of the logo for my website.

Here's a very rough sketch, need fresh eyes to look over proportions for me please, anything glaring? I know whe has no face, and that thing in her hair isnt staying.

C/C welcome, I want this to look shit hot when I'm done.

Edit = Ok, I give up trying to show it as a pic here's the link. These boards hate me I swear it.

do you know what i'd give to draw even that much?????? anyone have the devil's phone number??

i love that pose. suggestive without being blatant. kind of... sad? thoughtful? reminiscent?? without the face hard to tell. the suggestive part would be the missing hand... (yes, i have a dirty mind!!)

can't wait to see the next phase!!!

Lol, hand is on her ankle, I swear! The pose is based off Linda Ravenscroft 'Dark Eyes' Fairy, I have a tiny pic in a book and like the pose so trying to display Jet in that pose.

I think her leg looks a little short - I'd bring her knee up to about halfway up her upper arm. Form looks good, her shoulders are quite nice - might want to part her hair a little so you can see both.

i'm not a freehander but something about her ear seems off to me.. may be too high or the shape.
Jetamio 17 years ago
Hmm yeah, too small I think. will change it

Something about the area under her left arm bugs me a bit. It just seems, eh... off?

Otherwise (along with the other suggestions posted already) it seems to be coming along fairly well as a basic framework for the piece.

I love the pose and over all shape. Would it bother you if I pull it into photoshop and point out some areas to fix? Over all I think you have the proportions pretty close and it's on its way to being a really pretty image.
Jetamio 17 years ago
Sure go ahead

the suff on her waist is cos in the pic I used as refence the figure is wearing a dress thing. Also, have made her leg a little longer. Ear is fixed too.

I'm just fighting with the lips atm and i'll post next stage.

The drawing looks good, though some things look a bit off proportion wise. The hand that is on the shoulder appears too small for the width of her shoulders and the size of her head. You might want to look at the lower half of the bent leg. It appears too thin. Here is a link to Linda Ranvencroft's page. The larger image might help you see the proportions better.

Her left shoulder is a little long giving her a more manly shape. A woman's body has narrow shoulders and wider hips (yay for birthin' babies) granting her a more curvy than angular figure. Also, bring her waist in so that she's curvy and less boxy. Her legs need to be connected at her bottom. Imagine an upside down heart, her legs are going to connect to the curves of the heart

I love her eyes and face, she's very very pretty. The hair is going to look great too. *nod*

I love hair, I could draw hair all day lol. Going to try sort her shape later, I might even try doing it in PS instead of paper o.O

And why are horses so much easier to draw than people? lol
FyreGarnett 17 years ago
horses... people... horses... people...

still doing stick figures here!!!


great work!
Jetamio 17 years ago
Ok...I like, completly redrew her (except her face, cos its a fluke that its that good) and she's about 2 stones lighter for a start lol.
Jetamio 17 years ago
Her left arm still...isn't quite right is it? ;/
FyreGarnett 17 years ago
rofl - so much for the suggestive hand!! and her other hand looks much better - much more proportionate!

i think you're right about the left arm. seems a bit smaller than the other, shorter.

she's gonna look great!
Jetamio 17 years ago
Hmm, Its same length, I just think the upper arm is a bit skinny? But what I can't fix I will hide under her glorious hair

Oh and the hand is labelled because on the last draft my guildies were asking what she was doing with that I've drawn it in lol
Jetamio 17 years ago
I coloured her all in then thought, that looks crap so started again using a different method lol.
Jetamio 17 years ago
Oh and I know her eyes a weird, I'm not finished with them yet.
Lunna 17 years ago
Jet! keep doing what you are doing with the coloring, what you have so far looks really good. I love her lips and the eyes are going to be lovely when you are finished.
